Yes, both forms are correct - depending on the context of the sentence.

I will write my doubt here, since is similar: it is regarding the plural and the singular of the noun.
So I mean the noun "fish" - did I read that it is uncountable, whether it has the plural? I can see sometimes the word " fishes" in the text - whether it is the correct plural from the word "fish", whether it doesn't have plural form?

According to my native speaker you can use the form "fishes" only if you mean 2 (or more) different species of fish.

The only fishes that I caught last week were salmon and sardine.
I ate 6 fish for dinner.
